3. LaRue Martin (#1 pick in 1972)

1larueI’m willing to bet 99% of people reading this have never even heard of LaRue Martin, which doesn’t say much about Martin’s NBA career as a number 1 pick. LaRue Martin was drafted by the Blazers and played with them for four years, before retiring from professional basketball. In four seasons he averaged 5.3 PPG and 4.6 RPG. Today, he works for UPS as a manager.

The 1972 draft wasn’t deep, but the Blazers missed out on a pair of all-time greats.

Players drafted after him:

Julius Erving, Bob McAdoo and Paul Westphal.

Why he is a bigger bust than Kwame Brown: Shorter NBA career. Drafted over Julius Erving. Worse stats than Kwame.
